This tutorial was written by me, Zuzzanna on Jan 10 - 2017
any resemblance to any other tutorial is completely coincidental.


I'm using a tube from Fania Love licensed at DAH
and Ken Morton licensed at CDO
Do not use these tubes without a license

My supplies here
the green supplies are from picturetubes and the rest from Granny's
she's not online anymore, but gave permission for free use of her stuff ♥

************
*I have supplied materials so you can make any of them as you like
or use your own materials
I used EyeCandy 5 Nature - snow drift - Setting, Dusting Heavy for the winter tag
and Vanderlee Snowflakes for the animation*

**********

We will be making the green version ☺ so open the Gardenfun supplies
they are all on it's own layer
choose a tube and arrange the supplies around it

when you are happy
freehand selectiontool - feather 12
select the grass layer
and make a selection like this


promote selection to layer - deselect
move this layer above your tube
now it looks like your tube is really standing in the grass, not just standing or laying on top of it ☺
drop shadow your tube
add a new layer - move to bottom - floodfill white
new layer
fill with a color to your liking
apply my mask - merge group - layers merge visible
add and name - done ☺
